This past Friday, PATTERN, along with Downtown Indy, Inc, hosted the first St’Art Up 317 Open House outside Circle Center Mall along Meridian Street, at the PRSVR space in the Artistry Building, and in Fountain Square at 1034 Virginia Ave. Artists and small business owners who had activated the underutilized first-floor commercial spaces, transforming them into colorful creative pop-up stores & window displays, came out to celebrate the successful launch of the program. They set up tables full of giveaways, snacks and refreshments to spark conversation with the public about the creative community. Check out some photos that we captured of the event, and keep watch for more to come!
